with the challenges facing our economy. the fact is there are folks on both side of the aisle that talk a good game on the idea of reforming medicare or doing something about social security, nobody wants to own the plan. they want to agree to it reluctantly to a plan brought up by the other side because here's another fact. medicare and social security are universally popular and even in a republican primary getting caught messing around with social security without a reason is bad politics. so any time you hear this from either side, the other side needs to lead, translation i'm not going to put out a plan on medicare or social security. you do it. maybe i'll agree to it. today is the second day of the organizing for action conference here in washington. when you hear what the president told political donors and activists last night, bear in mind he made those remarks after an hour of having his own motives questioned by house republicans repeatedly. from the outset, the president went out of his way to say his aims with ofa are not just political. >> people have been puzzled about what it is tha

at where defense spending is today either as a percentage of the economy or budget, it's below post-war norms. under the president's budget it will fall more rapidly. the main cause that we saw today of the explosive growth in spending over ten years, president obama made that worse although the republicans in congress ten years ago didn't cover themselves and the changing face of america. we have many more now supported by workers for the retirement programs and a noble important purpose. they need to be preserved for the next generation. >> you are a proud veteran and something i find to be interesting to some degree of polling is the lack of availability for benefits for those who have served so nobly and come home. i want to put up the stats for you. veterans affairs data. 600,000 veterans have benefits and 245,000 have benefitings back lock logged aier or more. the average is 273 days. the first time claimants from iraq and afghanistan, the average wait is 316 days. how come if you go out and fight for your country and bleed and come back wounded, you are waiting up to a year t
a balanced budget just for the sake of balance. my goal is, how do we grow the economy, put people back to work. >> paul ryan responded by mocking the the idea of a charm offensive. >> that didn't sound too charming to me, i guess i would say. it didn't come across as terribly charming to me. but, you know, look, we're used to this. >> democrats spent the day trying to point out the flaws in ryan's budget math, which depends on savings from higher taxes in the fiscal cliff deal, closing unspecified tax loopholes, and also counts savings from the president's health care plan, which ryan continues to promise that he wants to repeal. >> it's creative at best and fraudulent at worst. >> it's a hoax. it's totally phony to say, in the same breath, that they've presented a balanced budget and that they are repealing obama care. the math doesn't add up. >> and in an interview with cnbc's larry kudlow, ryan appeared to admit that he is depending on health care reform to achieve his balance. >> the likelihood of getting repeal this year is very, very, very low. does it blow a hole in your ten-yea
on the math. we're not losing the issues on spending and debt and jobs and the economy. those are total winners for us. what we found in the election is while we're winning the arguments on spending and math, we're losing sort of this emotional cultural vote out there in presidential elections. and it didn't just happen overnight, luke. i mean the fact is our parties have a tough time over the last 24 years winning decisive presidential elections. and it's our job as a party to get to the bottom of why that is. and that's what we're trying to do. so, you know -- >> okay. let's talk about that emotional cultural vote. your predecessor said this this morning on "morning joe" about the issues you have in minority community. >> how does he reconcile his agreement with voter registration policies that many in the black community view as anti-black, racist? you can show up any time. it's what you say and what do you when you get there that matters most to people. >> so the former chairman steel is attacking you right there saying that you're not doing enough in terms of minority outreach, tha
